Exotic colors emanate from the mother-of-pearl nacre of abalone and paua mollusks. These sea reef and rock creatures build the shells as they grow, with rings of colors gray, blue, green, pink and gold. Paua from New Zealand is more brilliant, with color found inside and outside the shell. This page has an assortment of handcrafted jewelry incorporating parts of these shells in various settings. For more organic looks, see also Shell and Mother-of-Pearl pages.
